Interior decorating is a visual process. You should have a idea of how your high-end furniture will fit together in your head, but you won't know how it all will fit together without arranging everything and taking pictures. Sometimes it's difficult to even know where to start. That being said, your interior decorating ideas can be improved with a little inspiration from Instagram.
Popular interior decorators have a HUGE following on social networking sites, and none of those sites are larger than Instagram. For this reason, we've compiled our top 5 favorite home designer Instagram accounts.
